U.S. Congressman John L. Mica informed Historic City News local reporters that he will join local, community and state leaders tomorrow for the St. Johns Economic Summit.
The meeting will be held Thursday, September 9th at 12:00 p.m. at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport Special Events Center located at 4730 Casa Cola Way in St. Augustine.
“The purpose of the meeting,” Mica said, “will be to discuss the coordination of economic and job creation initiatives.”
While speaking to Republican Club of Greater St. Augustine President Gary Bruce and Secretary Pat Greenfield at a luncheon Wednesday, the congressman observed that nearly every American family has been affected by the economic downturn.
Mica insists that government must reduce taxes, provide incentives for investment, create private sector jobs and keep employment in America.
“Congress must stop the funding of government bailouts and rewarding failed entrepreneurs,” Mica told local Republican leaders. “Congress must balance its budget and adopt sound policies relating to financial and investment activities.”
